Consider This: Summer opportunities for kids

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It's been a week with lots of Good News stories, and we start Thursday's Consider This with an influx of Girl Scouts into the Hostess City.

Girl Scouts from across the country will spend the weekend in downtown Savannah the second annual Girl Scout QuestFest.

The festival includes a series of events, but the main event is a two-day scavenger hunt that allows the girls to explore Savannah - the home of Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low.

Also planned is a Bridging Ceremony where the scouts get to walk from one end of the Talmadge Bridge to the other, marking their transition into their next year of being a Girl Scout.

The Bridging Ceremony will take place Saturday morning, which means traffic will be impacted as they walk the bridge.

Plenty of kids will be able to hang out at the beach this summer and learn at the same time thanks to The Tybee Marine Science Center's Sea Camp.

Sea Camp runs through the end of July, with a different conservation-friendly curriculum and featured animals every day. Tybee offers the lessons to 6 through 11-year-olds, and the students will leave with a greater appreciation of the beach and its creatures.

Volunteers gathered last week on Bull Street to help the nonprofit The Creative Coast improve their workspace.

The organization said volunteer day was the perfect opportunity for helpers to roll up their sleeves and get dirty in the name of entrepreneurship. Volunteers did some light cleaning - organizing dump runs and more - to try to put a little bit more sparkle into their incubator space.

The goal of Creative Coast is to nurture the members of the Savannah community engaged in creating or innovating endeavors and to cultivate an environment in which they can thrive.
